What exactly is the Still-Well Student Wellness Program?

This program uses the distinctive osteopathic philosophy of holistic medicine to encourage students to be mindful of their wellness and health throughout their academic studies at ATSU. In addition, it provides an atmosphere in which students can reach their maximum potential in mind, body, and spirit.

Go to the program overview brochure to learn more.

Why should you care about your overall wellness?

To give to others, a person must have their basic needs met. It is impossible to give what you don't have.

What are the components of the Still-Well Student Wellness Program?

There are seven components. Click on the links below to learn more about each one.

Perks to being a part of the Program

Students on the Missouri Campus receive free membership at the Thompson Campus Center and students on the Arizona campus receive free membership at the YMCA located at the campus. In addition, before participating, students receive a physical exam and fitness assessment at no charge.

Pre-participation Physical Examination

Physicians conduct the pre-participation physicals. The exam includes assessment of:

  • Cardiovascular Risk
  • Immunization
  • Nutrition
  • Complete History
  • Musculoskeletal Examination

These exams are done annually at the beginning of the fall quarter. They last approximately one hour and are free. (If blood work is ordered, you will pay for it at cost.)

Fitness Assessment

These assessments include:

  • Body fat analysis
  • Flexibility
  • Strength testing
  • Agility
  • VO2 Max estimate
  • Sit up test
  • Vertical jump

Fitness assessments are given twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring.

Classes and Activities

There are lectures held several times a year that will allow you to learn about fitness.

The Still-Well Student Wellness Program Committee

The Committee includes physicians as co-medical directors, faculty as researchers, and student affairs staff and students involved with assessments and programming. Interdisciplinary planning, implementation, and evaluation is a key factor in the successful growth, promotion, and acceptance of the wellness program among students, faculty, and administration.
